Narciso plebeyo is the title chosen for the Pablo Suárez (1937-2006) exhibition curated by Jimena Ferreiro and Rafael Cippolini at the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA). From the part towards the whole, the sculptural installation Narciso de Mataderos (1984-1985) projects as a key to look at the whole of the portrait of a subjectivity, which in each work is imbricated with the folds of a social history. In these folds the plebeian appears as a program of intervention in the art system and as a torsion of the artistic canon. The biographical effect of the exhibition reflects a work of collective memory carried out by those who knew it and contributed to the historical thickness of the exhibition.

Entering Delia Cancela. Reina de corazones (Delia Cancela. Queen of hearts), exhibition curated by Carla Barbero at Buenos Aires Museum of Modern Art, we are greeted by a painting with curved contours. Inward, large planes of primary colors oppress a face with absorbed eyes; outward, those planes push against the edges like a cloud in the instant before losing its contour. In Mujer y nubes (Woman and Clouds), of 1965, the formal synthesis of a pin-up figure and the effects of reverie annotated, with stereotypical signs, by a camp consciousness converge. The piece realized in co-authorship with Pablo Mesejean was, perhaps, chosen for the position it occupies by knotting three tenacious lines in Cancela’s production: visual mass culture, representations of femininity and visualized fantasy as an expanding force.
